    I’m from the Berkshires and REALLY miss New England in the Autumn most!

  • I love these pictures, I grew up in rural areas in Canada and always loved the autumn scenery, now I live in a land of ice and snow where no trees grow. I could stare at these pictures for a long time, just soaking them in!

  • Why is Maine ALWAYS left out of things like this? Do you think there are no barns in Maine? I can picture several starting right in Eliot and moving up thru the state.

    I’ve lived in the beautiful Hudson Valley my entire life but it is my trips to New England that have sustained me physically and spiritually. My ancestors came over on the Mayflower, my soul finds respite in ME, my eyes feast on the beauty of VT and NH and CT is a neighbor that I can rely on for a quick visit. I feel most blessed to call New England home and Yankee Magazine keeps me connected when the physical being is not possible c

    I was born in Pittsfield, Berkshire County. Lived in Massachusetts most of my life;Salem Village (Danvers), Acton and Lynnfield. My entire family except for my baby sister were Massachusetts born. I currently live in the Chicago suburb of Glen Ellyn. I would love to move back home to New England. Alas my siblings are here and all I have left.There is nothing like the air, feel the beauty in its entirety of New England. My beloved Mother always felt sad when she was taken away from New England. My beloved Dad’s work kept us moving back and forth between Massachusetts and Illinois. My heart, my soul, my spirit will always be in New England. It will always be my home
